This online workshop covers a wide variety of mixed media art techniques, all focused on the unique substrates of Artist Trading Cards and Artist Trading Coins. Popularly known as ATCs, these surfaces are fantastic for trying out new techniques!
You'll learn how to create wonderful and whimsical 3-dimensional Artist Trading Cards and Artist Trading Coins. We'll go through step-by-step mixed media art techniques working through ten Content Categories. Each category consists of multiple lessons. There are 55 lessons in all!
Categories include ATC Surfaces, Working with Wet & Dry Inks, Color Blending, Creating Depth and Dimension,Tantalizing Textures, Stamping Tips & Tricks, Stenciling Tips & Tricks, Embossing & Faux Finishes, Collage Assembly, and Quick & Easy Embellishments.
I'm Marjie Kemper and I'm wild about color. I love blending colors and building layers of depth, texture, and dimension.
I'm a Certified Ranger Educator and I work primarily with Ranger's Distress products (Distress Inks, Distress Oxide Inks, and Distress Stains are three of my favorites). That said, I encourage students to work with what's on hand.

The sky's the limit regarding the different supplies you can use in this class.
There are soooo many ways to create depth and texture on your cards.
Even old supplies look new when used in interesting ways on small surfaces.
These ATCs are kind of addictive... consider yourself warned!
The class is delivered in a series of self-study video lessons that you'll access online. I will host the videos on the class website for 365 days. You may download them and keep them forever if you wish, and watch them as many times as you like.
You'll also receive an eBook full of templates that you can copy and resize to fit your own projects. I share loads of different Artist Trading Card and Artist Trading Coin samples and show you how I create them. This class is technique-heavy.
You’ll receive access immediately and can work at your own pace. Whether you want to spread out your learning over time, or binge-watch over a weekend… the content is all yours, right away. You’ll be invited to a private Facebook Group where others share their art, and encouraged to share your own, if you like.
Is this class right for me?
This class will benefit anyone who wants to improve their understanding of mixed media art techniques. We will cover techniques such as Stamping, Stenciling, Texturizing, Embossing, Creating Faux Finishes, Resists, Image Transfers, Collage, Painting, and Embellishing.
You'll have access to the class materials for a full year (and you can download them during the year, to keep forever.)
It’s right for you if you want to work at your own pace, with no pressure of deadlines or timeframes. Whether you want to spread out your learning over time, or binge-watch over a weekend… the content is all yours, right away! You’ll also be able share your art when/if you like, with others, in a private Facebook Group.
Do I need a lot of supplies?
Absolutely not. I encourage you to use what you have on hand. That said, there are some techniques that are truly and explicitly product-driven, meaning you will not achieve the same results if you use another product that has a different chemical formula. (For instance, dye inks are verrrrrry different than pigment inks.) I will supply a list of products you may want to consider, but know that I heartily encourage you to use substitutes when possible.
That said, I am a Certified Ranger Educator, and I use a great many of their products. Some of the products used in this class are Distress Inks, Dylusions Ink Sprays, and Distress Stains. See the recommended supply list here. It's also a good idea to start collecting small things that you can use to embellish your projects. I like to designate a basket or box when I take a class, and toss things into it as I come across them.
How Much Does the Class Cost?
The class fee is $99.
Can I Share this Course?
No. You are purchasing a single-use class and you may not share the class content or your unique log-in information with anyone.
Is there a Refund Policy?
Yes. If you’re not satisfied with the course after 10 days, email a refund request. You'll be asked to show your work, so I know you gave it a fair go.
How long do I have to complete the class?
Take as much time as you need. There’s absolutely no fixed schedule, time limit or deadline. You can watch the lessons whenever you like, as many times as you like, on your own timetable. You will have 365 days to download the materials should you wish to keep them forever.
What if I have questions or need support?
Within minutes of enrollment, you’ll receive email communication including a receipt and log-in credentials.
